Classic South East Asia

Prices From:
US$ 1,308

Standing out among Asia tours, this is the ideal itinerary for the independent traveler wanting a taste of the region. Start in exotic Bangkok, go on to vibrant Singapore, then enchanting Bali, finally ending in bustling Hong Kong.


Few Asia tours offer this much variety in such a short time.

It is called classic because it encompasses the perfect itinerary for anyone who, on a customized independent basis, wants to see as much as possible in a limited amount of time and also wants to make sure they visit the key Asia destinations. Here you combine Bangkok, Singapore, Bali and Hong Kong.

Your stay begins with a visit to the renowned Grand Palace, the former residence of Thai kings. In this complex, you will be able to relive the splendour and pageantry of the past. A highlight will be the impressive Emerald Buddha. After this, continue to Wat Po, one of the oldest and largest temples in Bangkok where the large Reclining Buddha is housed. In the evening, you will have an enjoyable cruise on the Chao Phraya River which traverses the city with spectacular sights to be experienced on both banks including the Temple of Dawn, the Grand Palace and many other interesting landmarks. During the cruise, Thai delicacies will be served. 

The following morning, head outside the city to Damnoen Saduak to see the colourful floating market where the customers travel in their boats to the merchants who are lined up on the sides of the canals selling their wares. Also visit the tallest Buddha pagoda in the world, the Phra Pathom Chedi. After lunch at the nearby Rose Garden, you will be entertained by a Thai cultural show including music, singing and the martial arts. Return later back to Bangkok.

Depart from Bangkok and fly to Singapore. Singapore is certainly a small country with a population of only 4 million but there are a large number of reasons to spend time here. It is very much a modern garden destination in many respects with its downtown skyscrapers and 50 parks and 4 nature reserves. But it also retains its old colourful districts which are influenced by the ethnic mix that exists here. Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures stand side by side and can also be seen individually in neighbourhoods such as Chinatown and Little India.

The attractive Singapore River dissects the city and one enjoyable experience is to stroll along its banks through Boat Quay and Clark Quay where one can eat, drink and take in the local neighbourhoods. Apart from the ethnicity of Singapore, another major attraction is the amazing shopping much of which is centered on Orchard Road but also in the many night markets. For the culturally inclined, there are art galleries, museums and a very contemporary performing arts centre.

Start your exploration of Singapore by visiting the downtown commercial core travelling by the Padang Cricket Club, Parliament House, the Supreme Court and City Hall. Then it’s on to MountFaber where you will have a wonderful panoramic view of the city and Sentosa Island. Next, enjoy the serene National Orchid Garden which is also known as the Botanical Gardens. Then comes Little India with its large Indian community, one of the most colourful and attractive neighbourhoods. The afternoon is free as is the evening.

Why not head to the sights and sounds of Boat Quay along the banks of the SingaporeRiver with its bright lights, lively nightlife and many eating establishments or stop at the famous Raffles Hotel and head to the Long Bar for, naturally, a Singapore Sling.

Fly next to Bali, an island located 3.2 kilometres/2 miles east of Java and the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. One interesting fact is that the local religion is predominantly Hindu differing from the rest of Indonesia. This accounts for much of the culture and tradition here. The terrain in Bali is made up of mountains, rugged coastlines, rice terraces, volcanic hillsides and of course excellent beaches.  It is known for its festivals, traditional dancing, handicrafts and paintings as well as its Batik industry. You are totally free to enjoy the beach or explore the island as you wish.

Known as “the City of Life” as it never seems to sleep, Hong Kong is a vibrant and exciting city made up of the Mainland and Hong KongIsland with the famous Star Ferry linking the two. It boasts an expansive skyline and a deep natural harbour. One can enjoy so much here including fantastic shopping either in the stores or at the street markets which abound, cruise around the harbour and also enjoy the Symphony of Lights, a spectacular evening light show beamed across the harbour and reflected onto the buildings.

Your morning tour of Hong Kong includes Stanley Market on the far side of Hong KongIsland, a maze of alleyways with a multitude of stalls selling everything under the sun with excellent bargains in clothing, watches, electronics and much more. Then continue to Aberdeen, also on the Island, a floating collection of restaurants all reached by boat and a fun place to have a meal. Next is VictoriaPeak, which offers spectacular, panoramic views of the harbour and of the mainland. The breathtaking beauty of Hong Kong can never be forgotten from this vantage point. The rest of the day is at your leisure.

Independent exploration and touring in Hong Kong is endless in its possibilities. Perhaps take the ferry to Macau for the day or the island of Lantau with its serene beauty or simply stroll around the neighbourhoods of Kowloon or Wanchai. Also consider the museums or take in a concert one evening.

One thing about Hong Kong is that you will not be bored for a single second!
